Today marks the first day that my treats are available for purchase at the Paleo food cart, Cultured Caveman! Wahoo … so thrilling!
I went in this morning and Joe (one of the owners) gave me the lowdown and more or less a tour of the cart. I mean tour in the sense that he got me acquainted with the space because basically, you walk in, look right, left, forward, up and around, and see it all. A tight space, indeed. It was neat to see how things operate though, as it was my first time ever setting foot inside a food cart.
Joe left me to do my thing, so I went to town. I brought all my ingredients with me and even brought my own apron (a pretty frilly one my sister bought me … I’ll get a pic next time). It was challenging working in such a small area without much counter space, but I adjusted and figured it out quickly. Before I knew it, I was processing, chopping, mixing and rolling. I made 99 cherry nut balls and 63 salted almond, which yielded 33 cherry nut packs and 21 salted almond!
The treats are packaged three per baggie and cost $2. Salted almond may always be one of my staple flavors, but the other flavor will rotate. I can’t wait to see how these suckers go over! If you live in Portland, I encourage you to go to the Cultured Caveman cart on NE 15th and Alberta, and check out my goodies. If you do, please give me feedback!
